TAINTED CABARET is a provocative burlesque cabaret featuring stars of the renowned underground theatre scenes of New York, Toronto, and Vancouver. A sinfully funny mix of satirical song and irreverent neo-burlesque, their show is a deliciously naked evening of sexy, campy and theatrical entertainment. Smart and subversive, Tainted Cabaret celebrates sensuality, sexuality, and redefines the rigid structures of traditional femininity. The award-winning cast welcomes their audience into their uncensored and liberating world with open arms.

Out for their second national tour, Tainted Cabaret hits the open road in March and April 2019. New cast member, #1 iTunes charting cabaret comedian and ‘chanteuse provocateur’ Shirley Gnome (“Dark, sexy, over-the-top and she’ll sing songs that will make sailors blush.” -Sunday Mail, Australia) joins producer Ula Uberbusen (“An absolute delight…beautiful and touching.” -Burlesque Beat) and boylesque superstar James & The Giant Pasty (“Ridiculous fun stuffed into a sequinned jockstrap.” -Edmonton Vue). Traveling through over twenty states from New York to New Orleans, and Durham to Denver, this all-star cast is making a stop at The Mockbee on Friday, March 22nd. They hope to bring a feel-good, adults only extravaganza that Cincinnati will never forget.

“Working with a team of smart and talented artists, all at the top of their game, means that we empower each other to create entertaining and thought-provoking theater,” says Ula Uberbusen about producing Tainted Cabaret. James and the Giant Pasty adds about performing burlesque, “There is no other art form where you get to connect so viscerally with the audience. You get to look them right in the eye, acknowledge them, make them feel something, and then hear and feel their response.” Shirley Gnome says that combing her comedic songs with burlesque is a perfect fit because “my music comes from a very positive, revealing, shameless place, and I find that energy seems to compliment burlesque perfectly.”

Tainted Cabaret is on tour in March and April 2019.
